‘They just cut and pasted’: Man United fans SMOKE as a mock-up of their new third kit is ‘leaked’ online – with yellow jersey HI-VIS compared to David de Gea’s goalkeeper strip
- A mock-up of Man United’s new third kit has leaked online
- Controversial design features a high-visibility yellow base and “zigzag chevron”
- United fans have taken to social media to express their displeasure with the kit
- Some have compared it to the one worn by goalkeeper David de Gea this season
Manchester United fans are furious after a mock-up of their new third kit leaked online.
Popular football shirt website Footy Headlines has published images of a ‘likely design feature’ for United’s third stripe in the 2022/23 season, which they claim will feature a ‘zig zag chevron’ on certain parts of the shirt.
Their mockup kit combines a high-visibility yellow base color with “striking” yellow applications and logos, but it has not been well received by United supporters.

In recent years Adidas have used the same hi-vis yellow design for their goalkeeper kits, with David de Gea often plying his trade between the sticks while donning the ‘electricity’ shirt.
As a result, the Old Trafford faithful believe their new third strip will look too much like a goalkeeper number if the mock-up design turns out to be accurate.
One wrote on Twitter: “Basically this season’s goalkeeper shirt.”
Another commented: ‘I swear they just clicked copy paste on this season’s GK kit lol’.
A third said: ‘Fs I normally buy the 3 tops maybe I won’t next season’.
Adidas used the same color when designing David de Gea’s goalkeeper kit for this season
United fans think they simply copied De Gea’s tape to use for next season’s third kit
Old Trafford faithful took to Twitter to express their frustration over the potential design
One of them even suggested not buying the third kit as they usually do next season
Another said: “They really don’t care about us.”
As one of them joked: ‘Will slap in the [Europa] tbf’ conference league.
Despite the fan’s quip, United will relish their chances of wearing their new third kit in the Champions League next season.
Ralf Rangnick’s side currently sit in fourth place and are in a strong position to hold onto it, as fifth-placed West Ham are four points behind.
Nonetheless, sixth-placed Arsenal trail on the same number of points but still have three games left, meaning they could leapfrog United and open a five-point gap by winning those extra games.
